Subject: [Computerbank] Fees
> G'day all!
> I'm fairly new to Linux, and this correspondence although written on
Linux, has actually been sent on proprietory software, but anyway, my point
is as follows;
> I became involved with Linux and Computerbank Victoria because:
> 1. Machines and peripheral are being FREELY donated by
companies/individuals because they believe we can do some good with them.
> 2. Machines and peripheral are "serviced" by people who donate their
time, money, and talent FREELY because of their community spirit.
> 3. Training for recipients to use the machines correctly, is given FREELY
by people who want to pass on their skills to others.
> 4. That NO payment was received at any time for equipment / services
provided by any member of Computerbank, other than as a donation if the
recipient wished - it was neither asked, nor solicited for!!
> 5. Most of the machines are not commercially viable or able to have
current proprietory software on them.
> 6. That Computerbank was set-up in order to assist disadvantaged and
low-income persons like myself get a computer, and not be left behind in the
I.T. age in which we live, because of the greedy mongrels like Mr Bill
> 7. We should be approaching companies/people who can afford to give
money, not the people we are trying to help!!
> I for one would not be as fortunate to have my PC, and I will fight to
keep it the way it was intended to be. If people want to sell computers
then they should be second-hand dealers, not in a community spirited
> Well that's my 2 cents worth, if I have read the correspondence wrong I
apologise, but if I am right, and I think I am, then maybe some others need
to think about what I have said, what they are looking for/trying to do and
decide whether computerbank is the way for them.
